Last November 28, 2015, MAN Pharma, alongside The Diabetes Store (TDS), participated in the SunPiology 2015 Celebrity Run at McKinley Hill, Taguig City. With over 3,000 participants, the SunPiology Celebrity Run aimed to #KickDIABETES and raise awareness for diabetes. MAN Pharma and TDS joined the event by promoting its products and services. The team conducted free glucose screenings and lipid profile testings. GluNEO Lite glucose meters were also sold at the event at discounted price. Finally, some of MAN Pharma and TDS members participated in both 5 km and 10 km runs respectively.
Studies have shown that diabetes is common among Filipino households. Our country is a diabetes hotspot, with roughly 8 million Filipinos affected. Given this situation, TDS aims to help patients by supporting their diabetes management through nutrition counseling and diabetes-friendly products.
